Generative Citizen

Five Core Practices for skilful living in challenging times

7 Wednesdays 2nd November 2022 – 14th December 2022 6.30pm-8.30pm London time, online

How can we be prepared and welcoming of the opportunities, both local and global, to contribute positively towards our collective urgent project of creating peaceful and sustainable ways of living? And how can we do this skilfully with wisdom and compassion?

How can we develop the deeper everyday practices of being kindly, centred, and creative across many contexts in a way that makes significant positive differences to the bigger world?

‘Everywhere you go, there you are! ‘ in Jon Kabat-Zinn’s phrase. How we are feeling and behaving impacts and influences everyone around us. It’s the quality of our inner development that makes the difference in the choices we make in our everyday words and actions.

Our habits and decisions about how we interact in the public space, the shops, at the bus stop, with our neighbours and with strangers really matters. Helping others feel seen, safe, less alone and more appreciated is a powerful cause set in motion in the alienated and volatile context we currently live in. We can learn how not to be a bystander but how to bring creative engaged energy into every connection and conversation.

We want to make a positive difference in our fractious and unstable world. We already do this professionally and through our material projects and engagements. But we often find ourselves narrowing our focus to bring our skills only into these key areas.

This new seven-week evening course offers a unique opportunity to develop and create personal generative practices for the ‘miraculous everyday’

– and to find out what happens when you do.

The programme is developed from the new field of Generative Change developed by Robert Dilts and Stephen Gilligan which brings together the very best of their respective forty years of research and successful applications in transformational approaches to learning and change.

The programme introduces and explores five key ‘City Zen’ practices which each person will bring together in their own way. There is plenty of space for individual needs and preferences. There are no set techniques although there are powerful models to help structure and organise a personally meaningful developmental pathway.

The five Generative Citizen practice are:

Self – management, emotional and somatic intelligence, COACH / CRASH states

Empathy, compassion for self and others (includes approaches from the arts)

Self-development at identity level, mission, values, healing family patterns etc

Belief change, linguistic approaches to perception, meaning, communication

Curated citizen’s knowledge base; history, social issues – non-ideological ‘book club’

The sessions will be for 2 hours each, once a week for seven weeks. There will be an introductory overview session (1), then each week one of the core practices in more detail (2- 6), and finally, a session to integrate and design your own practices, projects and pathways (7).

The way we are solving problems is the problem. We live in troubled times and we need to take our capacities to new levels to meet new challenges with creativity and humanity.

The responses to the idea of this programme have been very positive and we know a new generation of coaches, activists and community groups are wanting to bring these types of skills and ‘inner development’ approaches to their work.
